Summary: We are no rookies to Nokia phones. We purchased this for international travel. It worked "ok" for our purposes (calling, texting) but had serious issues randomly turning off, deleting messages, and poor call quality. I would definitely recommend spending the money rather on the newer Nokia Windows phones instead (which is what we did after this purchase). I wish I could get my money back for this phone.
Summary: My wife bought this phone to replace her aging Nokia N71 that also started messing up. In all fairness, the N71 lasted a long time and this was the main reason she wanted to go with another Nokia. This phone is very small, but functioned well as a pseudo smart phone without the smart phone price. Of course with it not being a real smart phone, it lacked a lot of smart phone features, no app store and limited internet browsing capabilities, to name a couple.
Summary: This phone came imprinted with Movistar on the back, which suggests that it is locked to that provider. But that's not a huge deal for me, since the whole point for me was to test web pages over WiFI. Unfortunately, WiFi doesn't actually work. I can't connect to my home network at all. Internet searches suggest the problem could be solved by adding an active SIM card. That's unlike pretty much every other WiFi-enabled phone on the market.
Excerpt: Small and sweet, for those who don't want to spend too much and that too on an ancient device, the Asha 311 is relatively new for those who want to keep it simple. However, there are no popular apps available, contrary to the adverts! It's all very basic, so if you would like a smartphone, this may not suit you. As of now, the Nokia XPRESS browser is ... not that great as widely advertised. And after two years, my battery now only lasts a day!
